a great night. receive tomorrow. ♪ lou: good evening, everybody. president obama and the house speaker said they would not negotiate the fiscal cliff in public, but it appears that the majority and the most meaningful of those negotiations have, in the sky taken place in public. today no exception with the speaker will have very public press conference demonstrating with unimpeachable clarity that spending cuts, not tax hikes, are the essentials resolution to the fiscal clough. the speaker used visual aids, this visual aid specifically to show how far government spending will be outpacing revenue in the years ahead, which makes utterly irrelevant the president's ultimate in on tax hikes. >> this line is that current baseline for revenue. here if the president got everything he wanted, over 1 trillion in taxes, this is what that would represent. but if you look at the spending problem you see it does nothing, nothing to solve the spending problem that our country as. lou: that very public demonstration of of flaw in the administration's fiscal logic leading to a public request from pres

-profile one at that. she's known for being very close to president obama, a long-time friend and ally for the president. she's also known for being blunt. and for being aggressively intelligent. she is a rhodes scholar. she's stanford educated. she was on the national security council staff and served as assistant secretary of state in the clinton administration. she was unanimously confirmed in 2009 for the post she holds now as the u.n. ambassador. when hillary clinton made clearer than clear that she would not stay on for a second term as secretary of state, susan rice's name was floated basically immediately as a potential nominee for that job. hers was not the only name floated for that job, but her potential nomination was given new prominence and new political heat when republican senators, led by john mcguess who decided that the political traction they could not get before the election in attacking the president for the benghazi attack, they would try to get instead after the election by attacking susan rice for the benghazi attack. they attacked her specifically for going on
give that a try. good morning, everybody. i'm terrell morning. president obama and speaker john boehner have met trying to hammer out a deal on the fiscal cliff. the discussion was described as frank. the president is apparently holding firm on taxing the wealthy and there are signs of dissension among the republican ranks. susan mcginnis starts us off this morning. susan, good morning to you. >> hi. good morning, terrell. the two men met for less than an hour, and that's not an encouraging sign. neither of them spoke during the meeting but what we heard before and after is neither side is budging on their core decisions, this as time to make a deal grows shorter. house speaker john boehner made the short trip up pennsylvania avenue to the white house thursday to talk to president obama about the fiscal cliff. the tax hikes and spending cuts set to kick in january 1st. they met for nearly an hour. both sides describe the discussion as frank. >> i think speaker boehner has a contentious caucus. >> the president wants to pretend that spending isn't a problem. that's why we don't have an a

to have right now. it's obvious that president obama has a great affinity for ambassador rice. you can see that when he talks about her. he came to her defense in the last month quite a bit but i think there was a lot of concern about the timing and whether this was a fight that he wanted to have. he had said in his first, in his press conference following his re-election that if he thought she was the best person for the job, that he would nominate her but he went on to not pin himself in, not to make a decision, and some of the critics who were in the corner of susan rice say this may have actually sealed her fate. she ended up heading up to capitol hill trying to defend herself against her role immediately following what happened in benghazi and trying to explain that on behalf of the administration. when she went up to capitol hill to meet with lawmakers the visits backfired. they raised a lot of questions and she was there to try to answer them and try to assuage concerns, that was true with senator susan hollins of maine, a republican but a moderate and that was seen as very troublin
'm chris matthews in washington. let me begin tonight with this. president obama deserves the best possible secretary of state. he picked a great foreign policy officer in the first term. he deserves to have one in the second. it's been my view some distance from the white house that the president was truly undecided on who this person should be. ambassador rice's removal of herself from consideration made his decision easier. john kerry could end up a fabulous secretary of state, someone to make this country truly proud. he lost the presidency by a single state in 2004, then went on to become a deeply effective chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. he projects a grace under pressure that we see in the president himself, a noble attribute most of us take as quiet courage. as embarrassing as it is to admit, he is one of the few top politicians in this democratic country to master foreign languages. not a small talent in world diplomacy. i like kerry because he's had the guts to run for office just like hillary clinton. he's had the nerve to stick his neck out and ask the voter
